Hirose rolls automotive connector series

February 23, 2011 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With its GT23F board-to-board connector series, Hirose Electric aims at automotive applications in particular in the infotainment and body domain.

The GT23F is a board-to-board connector system suited for SMT processing. For the start, the product will be available with 50 pins; products with 30, 40 or 60 contacts will follow. The connector features a “floating” area in x, y and z axis of 1 mm. Thus, the product enables manufacturers to connect two PCBs slightly shifted. In addition, it facilitates the installation at the production line.

The offset between the two halves of the connectors are evened out by means of the specific contact and package design. Other features include temperature range from -40 to +105 degrees Celsius, current carrying capacity of 0.5 A and voltage of up to 50 V.
